There are a few things I dislike photographing for the shop.
VELVET Especially black velvet. (no matter what it always looks flatttt)
HATS Mostly because I can’t decide how I want to shoot them. Mannequin head, by itself, on a hat stand. I go back and forth.
and last and probably my least favorite to photograph…
SHOES (as if you didn’t guess from the blog title)
I love how vintage shoe advertisements look so I’m using them as inspiration for photographing vintage shoes in the future. These look a bit like they’re doing a little dance step. J’adore!
These are charming standing poses. It reminds me of when I was on Drill Team (back in good ole Texas) and we would have to stand like this when we were in “relaxed” position.
These are great sitting poses. I tried to do this but my feet just do not look as elegant when in this position which is such a shame because this is one of my favorites. They’re feet look like they’re wearing point shoes….pooooint.
These are my absolute favorite. Pointed and posed with just a little flick of the heel. I feel like if I stand like this I would have to say “Ta-Da!” when I snap the photo. Or “Oh-la-LA!”

I love this sitting one too… but how to make it modern and relevant to now? (source)
